Xcel Energy and The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade are new supporters for NOCOM 2018

Press Release ( - LOVELAND, Colo. - Apr 08, 2018 - Northern Colorado Manufacturing Partnership (NoCO) ( has announced two major new sponsors for its NOCOM 2018 manufacturing trade show April 12, 2018:The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) and Xcel Energy.

These two organizations join a team of sponsors that include FirstBank, Aerotek, Flood and Peterson, and EKS&H. These sponsors all add to the manufacturing sector in Colorado and contribute to the development of the industry.

OEDIT is sponsored by the state to provide opportunities to businesses and enterprises in Colorado. The office, under the leadership of Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, provides financial and technical assistance supporting local and regional economic development projects throughout the state.

“The quickly expanding advanced manufacturing industry in Northern Colorado plays an important role in the state’s economic landscape,” said Katie Woslager, senior manager of Advanced Industries at the Colorado Office of Economic Development. “We are proud to sponsor the 2018 NOMCOM to facilitate further growth and collaboration in the industry.”

Xcel Energy provides power to residents across Colorado and beyond, while providing resources required by the manufacturing industry. Xcel Energy is tied in with the manufacturing sector in Colorado, providing products and services to many firms in the state.

“Given the growth Colorado is experiencing, our partnership with Xcel Energy is imperative,” said NOCOM 2018 Chair and H2 Manufacturing Solutions CEO Heidi Hostetter. “Colorado is one of the fastest growing states in the nation. Northern Colorado, specifically Larimer and Weld counties, is growing twice as fast as the state. It is important that we address our options sooner than later, and this type of growth has to include our energy partner. Local manufacturers are well aware of the need to be more involved with our local and state side Xcel Energy teams. Together we need to take advantage of Xcel Energy’s packages, rebates and programs.”

“The Governor’s arm for economic development is a key and critical partner to NOCOM and really reflects the commitment from a state level to our manufacturing community,” said Christine Juker of the Northern Colorado Manufacturing Partnership. “Partnering with Xcel Energy addresses a huge and critical infrastructure need that all manufacturers face.”
